Our Company Values

Passion to innovate 

Real innovation comes from hard work and the right attitude. We are passionate about Integrated Photonics and we are pioneers that are building an industry. This is what makes us unique! We never give up and believe in our technology with all its possibilities. We are proud to be part of this journey.

Continuous learning

We grow our people, that is part of our daily job. We insist on developing core competencies and sharing knowledge. We want to stay ahead in the photonics revolution. In our growth from lab to fab, there are many undefined paths we have to explore and define. We invest significant time to coach and recognize our employees.

Teamwork spirit

Every delivered chip is a team effort of all employees in all disciplines. This is the key to our success. We always step in to help our colleague, no matter what job title or role they have. We are open for feedback to improve our way of working or communicating. We truly care about our colleagues.

Trust in each other

We believe everyone in our company brings their own contribution to the success of SMART Photonics. Trust, respect, and integrity towards each other is the breeding ground for continuous growth and high performance as a team.  We allow people to make mistakes and to learn from them in order to grow.

Bias for action

Do it now and get the job done. Speed matters in our business. We roll up our sleeves and take action, again and again. We take initiative whenever we see we can improve things and have a sense of urgency towards getting things done today.

Customer obsession

Our customers are essential to us. They are the best testimony for the value of our work.  In everything we do, they are always on our mind. We openly communicate with our customers to gain their trust. We will go the extra mile to service our customer and deliver our products in line with our commitments.

Eye for quality

We insist on the highest standards in our processes and products and in the way we do our daily work. We are committed to continuously raising the bar. We believe operational excellence is key.


We own our work and deliver on commitment. This means that we take the lead in our work, despite setbacks or unclarity. We always keep our eye on the ball. We never say ‘this is not my job’.


We need procedures but need them to be the means, not the goal. We make our processes simple and functional in all departments to stay agile. We focus on what is needed to move forward pragmatically. We use our resources efficiently to accomplish more with less.
